The role of emerging mass media in informing popular attitudes towards imperialism in late-Victorian and Edwardian Britain is explored through a case study of music hall. Songs and sketches contributed little to the nurturing of an imperialist popular imagination. The A. takes issue with the assertion made by Hobson that music hall fostered a popular chauvinism. He suggests that the halls celebrated the emergence of a culture of consumption that transcended social and ethnic boundaries and confronted the dominant ascetic value system of the Victorian bourgeoisie
